We all want to be happy in life and The Resilience Project shows you how practicing gratitude, empathy and mindfulness can help you become more happy!
Schools, corporate groups and the biggest sporting teams in the country including AFL and NRL clubs, the Australian Diamonds and the Australian Cricket Team are all practicing the principles of The Resilience Project.
After spending time volunteering in an Indian village former teacher Hugh van Cuylenburg was inspired to create The Resilience Project, which educates Australian parents, children and organisations about the importance of gratitude, empathy (compassion) and mindfulness. “In this desert community, there was no running water, no electricity and no beds; everyone slept on the floor,” Hugh says. “Despite the fact these people had very little to call their own, I was continually blown away by how happy they were.”
The Resilience Project delivers programs to a range of organisations including elite sporting clubs and primary and secondary schools. In addition to the presentations schools receive they have the opportunity to complete a curriculum specifically designed to focus on what you have as opposed to what you don’t have, understanding the benefits of helping others as well as the importance of being healthy and active.
